Title: Given Value of Weird
Fandom: Justice League
Characters: Beetle, Booster, Batman, Question
Prompt: "Earth."

Author's Notes: Crossover with Gargoyles, because lakidaa mentioned Ted and Lex and I decided that was brilliant. Random crack, no beta. Enjoy.


Given Value of Weird

Okay, so gargoyles. Which is weird. But after a quick review, Ted decides that being transported to a parallel universe that contains gargoyles isn't the weirdest thing that's ever happened to him, so he just goes with it.

It helps that the small green gargoyle, Lexington, speaks Computer Geek and reminds him a little of Robin. So while a technophile in a loincloth is still a little weird, it's also weirdly familiar.

It also helps that Lex seems as amused as he is that Goliath and Batman appear to be trying to out brood each other, and that Booster is taking pictures to take home as proof that Batman's title of Champion Brooder was threatened.

(Ted is very, very careful to not even think about whatever it is Question and Detective Bluestone are discussing, because there's no way it's not scary.)

If all else fails, it helps that he's too busy helping Lex try to keep both their universes from imploding to really pay much attention to the weirdness. And that's only a slight exaggeration.

The skies are blood red and stormy, and Ted takes a moment to exchange a look with Question that asks "Why is this so familiar?" without any words. But unnatural weather and colors in the sky doesn't phase the gargoyles, so maybe it's a normal thing around there.

In the end, they somehow manage to fuse magic and technology, though Ted's still not sure how but knows he definitely wants to figure it out. And together, Justice League and gargoyle clan (with honorary human members), they save their worlds.

And Ted and Lex work out a way to send email interdimensionally, because Ted has some blueprints he wants Lex to see and Lex is working on a project he'd like Ted's advice on. They should probably be more concerned with using such technology for The Greater Good, but it'd probably just end up being misused somehow so they keep quiet about it.

And technically it is The Greater Good that's being benefited, except when they're just exchanging gossip. But Ted can't be expected to be noble all the time.

Then next alien invasion, this time by slimy purple hamster-slugs, Ted decides that yeah, gargoyles aren't so weird after all.

Awww, I loved watching Gargoyles when I was younger. I wish they still had it on.

Ted and Lex hanging out, though. Brilliant. Though I'm sure poor Booster would start feeling left out after a while, unable to keep up with their constant streams of technobabble.

Great little ficlet.

Who says Booster doesn;'t understand technobable? The stuff he learned in schoold was probably much harder to understand than anything we have now.

Yeah, but we all know that Booster didn't pay a whole lot of attention in school, which is why he's now working as a janitor in the background of the Legion of Superheroes cartoon.

But the question is, why is he even there? He wasn;t alive in that tiem.

Unless that's what happened to Real!Booster when he returned home after visiting Bea in the hospital.

He was pitched forward to the 31st century along with yet another Skeets, while nu!Booster and evil!Skeets went back to the 21st century in his place.

And Supernova!Ted will be along shortly to pick him up.

He's just an undercover janitor! Probably making sure that this Superboy doesn't go all psycho on them.

If Booster started feeling left out he could start swapping time-travel stories and "things that are weird and/or cool about this time period" opinions. :3

There's a new comicbook starting by Greg Weisman. Which so far seems to be picking up where he left off with the end of the second season.

Yeah, I think somebody on scans_daily posted a few pages of it. It looked great.
